Peugeot announcing 208 Hybrid FE Concept for Geneva image

The French based automaker Peugeot has recently announced its plans to introduce the 208 Hybrid FE Concept next month, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

After we have seen two concept versions of the 208, the GTI and the XY, almost a year ago, during the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, the French based automaker is now announcing yet one more concept car, based on the new generation of the popular B-segment hatchback. We’re talking about a hybrid version, which is named the Peugeot 208 Hybrid FE Concept, and it has a huge chance of entering the production line over the following months, as a possible high-end trim level.

According to the car manufacturer, the Peugeot 208 Hybrid FE Concept has been developed with the French oil and gas company Total and the model is coming with an aerodynamic exterior design, with unique alloy wheels wrapped in low-rolling resistance tires and it’s using polycarbonate and composite materials. Power to the Peugeot 208 Hybrid FE Concept is being provided by a 1.0 liter three-cylinder petrol engine, mated to an electric motor and to an EGC transmission. The model can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.0 seconds and it’s emitting just 49 g/km of CO2. The first images and more details on the greenest 208 yet will be announced in Geneva, in March.
